Building & Code Enforcement
One of the Planning Commission's functions is to safeguard the life, health, and property of Rogers County residents through the application of uniform building standards. These standards involve design, materials, construction, use, occupancy, and the location of all buildings and structures within Rogers County. The Planning Commission strives to implement these standards in a fair and consistent fashion while maintaining an open dialogue with the various building trades. Plan reviews, permits, and inspections for structural, electrical, plumbing, and mechanical as well as miscellaneous items are provided through the Planning Commission Building Safety & Inspection Services Department. The Planning Commission additionally provides code enforcement by providing follow-up on complaints of zoning and building code violations registered within the Planning Commission.
About Code Enforcement
Rogers County takes pride in the health, safety, welfare, and appearance of our community. Every individual property owner's maintenance contributes to the overall positive appearance of the neighborhood and our community. Code Enforcement is in place for inspecting and enforcing the City of Claremore/Rogers County Metropolitan Area Planning Commission Ordinances. Code Enforcement responds to complaints and determines if a code violation exists. If a violation exists, the responsible party is contacted and given a specific time frame to correct the violation. Complying and remaining in good standing over six months results in the case being dismissed and eliminates the need for further action. Failure to comply could result in a fine of up to $500 or a year in county jail. If you wish to submit a complaint, call 918-923-4874 or email Code Enforcement.
